The radical message of Jesus is that there is only one alternative to the common method of confronting violence with more violence. The Only Alternative: Christian Nonviolent Peacemakers in America explores the spiritually active practice of compassionate nonviolence. Here is a journey through the lives of seven courageous American peacemakers who have embodied Christian nonviolence and dedicated their lives to addressing the suffering caused by racial discrimination, slavery, poverty, militarism, nuclear weapons, prisons, environmental degradation, and the psychology of fear and hatred. Here are highlights from the inspirational ideas and actions of Martin Luther King Jr., Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton, Rufus Jones, Thomas Kelly, Jim Douglass, and Kathy Kelly. They remind us that to be Christian is to use the power of love to transform spiritual, economic, and social violence. The great turning from violence to nonviolence is the story of Christianity in America. There has never been a more urgent time for this revolutionary teaching to be heard, understood, and lived. It is no longer a choice, my friends, between violence and nonviolence. It is either nonviolence or nonexistence . . . --Martin Luther King Jr. Human beings are now facing the stark choice between survival and destruction amid myriad forms of violence. The nonviolent peacemakers within this book can inspire the peacemaker within each of us to cultivate a direct relationship with God and love through contemplation, meditation, writing, and compassionate action based in the life and teachings of Jesus.

"Seymour's obsessively researched, impressive first book holds its place as the most authoritative historical analysis of its kind."—Resurgence All empires spin self-serving myths, and in the United States the most potent of these is that America is a force for democracy around the world. Yet there is a tradition of American anti-imperialism which gives the lie to this mythology. Richard Seymour examines this complex relationship from the Revolution to the present-day. Richard Seymour is a socialist writer and runs the blog Lenin's Tomb. He is the author of The Liberal Defense of Murder. His articles have appeared in the Guardian and New Statesman.

The serene life of the irrepressibly optimistic little girl was disturbed. Child-play and fantasies gave way to fear and anguish. Wild thoughts were going through her mind while the German bombs were falling nearby her picturesque retreat: How dare they disturb my peaceful space? Who are these people who want to conquer the world? Why aren't they satisfied with their own terra firma, their own hideaways and retreats, their own Camelot? Why would they bother my magical surroundings and the environment of all the other children of other lands? Don't they have dreams, other than destroy other people's dreams? Weren't they ever children themselves, or better yet, don't they have children of their own? Don't they know that, above all, children need to feel safe and secure, warm and loved? Only three chapters were completed with the anticipation that the conclusion of this book would be optimistic and cheerful, along with the fervent wish that never again would children have live through the horrors of war and its dreadful consequences. The dreadful morning of September 11, 2001, however, changed the mood of us all. The devastation of the horrific events in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania will haunt us forever.

We can overcome Marxist ideas and make America great again by reconnecting with our faith and the godly principles of our Founding Fathers....Our founding fathers knew well the trouble we’d find ourselves in if we did not combine faith with action. John Hancock warned, “I conjure you, by all that is dear, by all that is honorable, by all that is sacred, not only that ye pray but that you act. Remember that where citizen complacency rules, wrong principles and policies will abound; and when it comes to sound government, the enemy is seldom them, it is generally citizen apathy.” Charles Finney expressed similar sentiments when he said, “The Church must take right ground in regards to politics...The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men and take consistent ground in politics.” Their words did not fall on deaf ears: Many former Presidents believed and trusted in God, and their leadership was blessed. Like our founding fathers, they knew how important it was to support Judeo-Christian values. But an increasing number of politicians are looking to socialism and Marxist ideology to enact policies—philosophies that have never helped America and have proved disastrous elsewhere....It’s imperative that all of us—Democrats, Republicans and independents—overcome misguided ideas and recapture godly principles in Dreams From Our Fathers. We need to trust and have faith in our Creator God to help us overcome our nations challenges just as our Founding Fathers trusted God during the Revolutionary War, when only one-third of patriots fought against British tyranny and won. At present, roughly 40% of Christians vote. Troubling, but still I believe God is for us, if we would only call on Him, and do our part to save this great Republic. For our nation, our freedom, and for our children....Be active and vote, and then, vote responsibly.
